Anyone can design a flat green with a minimal amount of breaks. It takes an expert to design a green that can simulate every different kind of putt you could encounter on the golf course – short putts; long putts; straight putts; left to right; right to left; uphill; downhill; double breaks; 2-tiers – you name it. A well-designed green will let you practice any kind of putt you want. Without a good design, most of your putts will be flat or straight.
You’ll also want to practice all kinds of approach shots – chips, pitches, bunker shots, and even full swings. The design of the green must accommodate these shots, as well. The sand traps, chipping and pitching areas must also be strategically placed in areas that give you a wide variety of shots. A pond can even be installed so you can hit approach shots over water. Lighting is also available so you can practice after the sun goes down.
